Samsung Galaxy Eventually Gets Second Screen

Another Samsung patent details second screen on smartphones.

Samsung has thought through the idea of a second display on the Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Another patent surfaced in the European WIPO database with more details on an additional display on the backside of a smartphone.

The new patent details three concepts of a screen on the backside. We have already seen the wrap around screen idea in November. The two other concepts are more interesting as Samsung shows what could be done with a touchscreen on the backside of a Galaxy smartphone.

There is a new way of holding a phone while using the pointing finger to tap on the screen. Sensors detect how the user is holding the phone. If the backside faces the user, the additional screen is activated.

Users will be able to accept or reject a phone call, or view notifications. When a message comes in users can see the sender information and open the message directly. The rear display also offers access to your email, photo gallery, and applications, such as the weather.

This new patent is pretty concrete and a Samsung Galaxy with a second display could come as early as 2019. The patent was spotted by LetsGoDigital. It remains to be seen if Samsung will show off new smartphone concepts at the CES 2018. The new Samsung Galaxy S9 is expected to drop in February. Samsung is likely adding Face recognition to the slightly redesigned Galaxy S9.
